SHOCKER: Trust in Media is at an ALL TIME LOW
Guest post by Aleistar
This is what happens when the vast majority in media aligns itself with one party against half of the country. Only an idiot or a liar would suggest that the media is biased against liberals. The media has always leaned left, but in the age of Obama they have staged an outright war on right leaning Americans.
The Tea Party was called racist by media liberals from day one while violent crime-ridden Occupy camps were called mostly peaceful. Opposition to Obamacare and anything else Obama and Democrats wanted to do was called racist.
The Democrats created the completely fake “War on Women” and the media propagated the lie every step of the way.
Whenever a Republican says something the media deems controversial, every single Republican is forced to comment on their remarks. Democrats are never subjected to this treatment. If time permitted, a dozen other examples could be provided.
Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post seems to think this revelation about distrust in media applies to everyone:
Trust in the media is at an all-time low. That’s a terrible thing for all of us.
And now for today’s least shocking statistic: Just four in 10 Americans say they have a “great deal” or a “fair amount” of trust in the media to report the news fairly and accurately, according to new data from Gallup. That matches historic lows the media also “achieved” in 2012 and 2014.
And while Republicans trust the media less than Democrats do, the numbers across all party affiliations are in rapid decline from even a decade ago…
GOOD!, some of you will, undoubtedly shout — particularly if you are either a conservative Republican or liberal Democrat. You deserve what you get! Your years of lies and agenda-pushing have finally caught up to you. WE ARE ON TO YOU.
To which I say: Wrong.
I don’t say that to be a jerk. I understand that many people who feel passionately about the rightness of one party or the other (and plenty of people who don’t) are simply convinced that the media is pursuing some sort of narrative that somehow furthers our collective “goals.”

BONUS TWEET: Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review has found the one leftist idiot who thinks the media is biased against liberals. This is hilarious and it comes from Hillary Clinton’s Facebook page:
